vaginal bleeding and cervical cancer

I am a 24 year old female. In July I had a cholcoscopy because I had low grade changes on my cervix. Over the last 3 weeks I have been experiencing vaginal bleeding heavy sometimes and then light others times. I have never experienced anything like this before.    
I am more concerned about cervical cancer than anything else but I called my Doc a few days ago and they said it was probably normal and that my body was changing. So my question is, is this normal and what should I do?

Hi Bailie,
It sounds like you should make an appointment for another pelvic examination. During a colposcopy, sometimes biopsies of the cervix and vagina are taken. Occasionally for a few weeks after this, a person can experience spotting or bleeding. It is good that you are getting an evaluation. As an aside, you should ask your doctor for copies of your pap smears and biopsies just for future reference. That can also help you to sort out what exactly has been done and what the reports show.
take care
